2020 Spring Lecture Series #3: Year-round Vegetable Gardening
March 19 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm$8.00
On March 19, Keith Nevison, manager of farm and nursery operations for the Thomas Jefferson Foundation, will speak on “Year-round Vegetable Gardening.” He will explain the latest approaches to ensuring successive harvests through all four seasons in Central Virginia. These start with building healthy soil and choosing varietals that excel in our increasingly erratic growing climate. They also include utilizing season-extension tools and techniques, as well as effective crop planning. He will touch on crop trials underway across the South and the use of historic crops that enhance garden diversity and resiliency. This lecture will be in Room A of the Albemarle County Office Building on 5th Street Extended, just off I-64.
